Anxiety about visiting the dentist’s office is a fairly common condition, one that affects millions of lives each year. You may be aware that your fear of the dentist is irrational, you may even be in great pain from your dental problems, but still you find it impossible to go to the dentist’s, or wait in the waiting room, or sit in the dental exam chair.
Fortunately, Robert M. Davis DDS & Associates has a solution that may be able to help. Nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas, can relax you during your dental procedure. To set up an appointment with our dentist in Raytown, Pleasant Hill, or Sedalia, pick up the phone and call (816) 844-7344.
Preparing for Your Dentistry Appointment
If you decide to take nitrous oxide prior to your dental procedure, you don’t need to make any special arrangements for a ride home. Nitrous oxide leaves your system in about 3-5 minutes on average, so you can go about the rest of your day without any ill effects. Make sure you follow Dr. Davis’s instructions regarding any other medication you are taking.
Sedation Dentistry with nitrous oxide offers many benefits:
- Rapid feeling of relaxation
- The amount you inhale can be adjusted moment-to moment based on your needs
- Can compensate for low pain tolerance
- Allows you to recover quickly with no after-effects
- No injections or oral drugs are required
- Dental appointments seem to pass more quickly
It’s important that you trust your dentist when undergoing nitrous oxide, and Dr. Davis is careful to cultivate the sort of doctor-patient relationship that makes him easy to trust. His qualifications as a dental professional and record of success let you know you are in good hands.
Being able to relax during your dental visits makes the whole experience much better and ensures you get your teeth treated as necessary. The dental practice of Dr. Robert Davis fosters a tranquil environment that helps you have a relaxing visit.
